A small theater used to play independent movies. I was there with friends to watch a film festival of short movies on trail running as an example. Located in the Mission District, it's close to some good and cheap eats. Not exactly the best location and they don't have leather seats, but it makes for a good place to host some local events or to watch some small, independent or foreign movies.

A good vibe all-round in this old school cinema with friendly staff! They play different stuff that you don't see in regular cinema. Keep it up!

Whoever did the bail out that saved this place, thank you. It's a great neighborhood amenity. For those of you who reside remotely, it's handy to 16th Street Mission BART so you don't have to engage in gladiatorial combat just to park. View the trailers before deciding to go: not all films are for you. If a film is really good, there may be a looong line and maybe you will not get in, so why not show up early, buy your ticket(s) and grab a bite at nearby Truly Mediterranean or Sunflower. BTW, they should call it the Roxies because there are two theaters with separate entry doors. It's not like the Lady or the Tiger but pick the right one and don't mistake the dive bar situated between them (also screens movies) for Little Roxie, save that one for later.

I went for the first time a few days ago to see a documentary film that a couple of friends produced and edited. Roxie's box office takes cash only, and the service fee charged for tickets through their website seems steep. But I guess that's the price you have to pay to purchase tickets in advance and with a credit card. The previews were cut off on the edges, which was a bit annoying. The showing we went to had pretty light attendance, so I could see the screen just fine, but I think if it were more crowded, I might have had trouble seeing over the head of the patron in front of me because the angle of inline is pretty small in the theater.

I love the Roxie! This quirky independent theater has been around forever and they do a great job with the programming. There are two screens, and they're pretty much always playing something you've never heard of. They'll do film festivals (like the First International Cat Video Festival for Humans, or more serious festivals), indie movies, documentaries. I never go to this theater expecting the show to be "good," but rather go with an open mind ready for something to either delight me or leave me amused by how insane it was. This is my go-to place for a quiet night out.

In a city where things are constantly changing, especially with large tech companies moving in and everyone going for the newer, bigger, brighter, flashier places, it's great that we still have these old school joints that show local, foreign, and films less likely to make the big screen. The lobby is small, so if you're waiting for a group, wait outside or take your seats. They make their popcorn fresh before a show.

Great space, great movies, great people and a deep history in San Francisco cinema. Since they became a non-profit they have really engaged the community and helped promote work that doesn't get enough attention other places.

Roxie Theater sits along 16th St in the Mission. Alternative and a throw back to independent theaters showing great films that are not at the local megaplex. Roxie Theater is a cool venue to visit when Frameline or Jewish Film Festival takes place to watch great features from around the world.
